This morning my daughter asked me, “were you alive when the guy who made the light bulb died?”
Her: “yeah, THAT guy.”
“OH no sweetheart, mommy definitely wasn’t alive. That was a really long time ago , like I don’t know…100 years?”
Her: “No. He died in 2006. It was only 2006. Aren’t you A LOT older than that?”
Me: “Well yes I was around in 2006, but he was definitely already dead.”
Her: “NO. You’re wrong”
